Preventable Injuries In West Palm Beach
There are many ways in which one can become injured, although preventable. If a drunk driver causes an accident, the other vehicles driver and passengers may sustain serious injury or even death. Crashes involving cars, motorcycles, and trucks may result in long-lasting or permanent injuries. However, vehicle accidents are not the only point of danger for West Palm Beach residents. Many people slip and fall, or trip and fall, due to unsafe and hazardous flooring. Sometimes undependable products make their way into the hands of consumers. Whether through a faulty design or purposeful oversight on quality manufacturing can make these products unreliable and possibly deadly. A prime example is the faulty Samsung washing machines that were capable of exploding.
Injuries are inconvenient, mentally agonizing, long-lasting, and financially draining. It should not be your responsibility to pay for the consequences of the negligent acts of another. No matter the reason of your injuries, if you were injured due to someone else carelessness, the responsible party may be legally required to compensate you for your injuries and other financial burdens.

Injuries In West Palm Beach
Injuries do not just occur out of nowhere; an outside force has to responsible for causing harm. A broken bone is a significant injury, but a cold or the flu wouldn’t qualify. On the other hand, if you suddenly and unknowingly become ill due to a wrong prescription, this would be considered an injury. Injuries do not have to be solely defined as a physical wound with a visible presence on your body.
Each year, the residents and visitors of West Palm Beach endure injuries due to many types of accidents. It is horrible, so many become inconvenienced by the physical suffering and personal burden of a preventable injury. Floridahealth.gov offers statistics on injuries, the types of injuries, and the causes of injuries sustained each year. These numbers show us the scenarios of many unsuspecting victims seriously hurt on a surprisingly frequent basis. Startling facts concerning injuries in Florida include:
- Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of injury death in age groups 5 to 24. The second leading cause of death for age groups 35 to 64 is also vehicular accidents. For children under the ages of 10 auto accidents and drowning were the leading cause of death.
The numbers are astonishing but more detrimental knowing many of these incidences could have been prevented. How many could have been prevented just by a driver focusing on the road? From a legal standpoint, when someone’s wrongdoing is directly related to the causation of an injury, the injured is available to seek out financial compensation. No one should have to become a statistic because someone else decided to act in a reckless and irresponsible manner.
Most Asked Questions
How much will my case cost me?
First, Shiner Law Group works on a contingency basis. This means You Don’t Pay Anything Until We Settle You Claim.
Many think a personal injury lawsuit can be expensive and financially burdensome. Many choose not to move forward with a lawsuit because it is assumed it will be too costly and too time-consuming. Tragically, this means many accident injury victims do not seek out an attorney, thus limiting their compensation, and sometimes not receiving any at all. If you file and win a personal injury case, you may recover enough finances for medical bills, lost wages, and any other costs related to your injuries. If you feel that you or a loved one have been a victim of someone’s deliberate and negligent actions, you should speak with an attorney about the details surrounding your occurrence today.
Should I wait to file a lawsuit?
There is a four-year statute of limitation in Florida for pursuing a personal injury claim. It does not mean you need to wait to the last hours on the fourth years to file your claim; you should seek legal guidance from a personal injury professional immediately to discuss the details regarding your case. Even if you feel you are outside of the statute of limitations, there may be a benefit to speaking with a personal injury attorney. Some injuries can take a long time to manifest or diagnose, so you still may be able to pursue an injury claim.
